The PPV had announcers. I do agree about them having their own look, which is a big plus. It's just that on one hand, you can have a mean-looking clothesline or elbow or knee finish a match (as it should), but dropping someone on their head is predictably a two-count.
I think the biggest offenders are the Briscoes, whereas the KENTA/McGuiness/Danielson bunch have excellent high spots but with a bit more realism added to the context.
I do wish that they'd go all the way with the "sporting" feel and remove all these backstage vignettes that still make me feel like I'm watching rasslin'.

Should I buy the DVD of this? y/n
Or should I get something older that's supposed to be good like Supercard of Honor?

I didn't see this show, but heard it wasn't the best. So yeah, probably better to get one of their better shows if you haven't seen any - Glory By Honor V, Night II is probably the best whole show, but you might do better with one that has a MOTYC on it (Punk/Joe II, Joe v Kobashi, or Unified with everyone's favourite Danielson/McGuinness fight, even though I preferred the rematch at Epic Encounter II).

So there's another one, ROH Driven. I still can't watch it. :/
